Fashion Test Drive: Dad Sneakers

Kind of ugly, kind of cool. The dad sneaker is everywhere. This trend is dominating the fashion scene from street style to fashion week. The resurgence of chunky kicks has been going on for awhile. Though I resisted at first, I finally caved for the 'it' shoe. (And yes my own dad Big Lou rocks thick sneakers and tall socks most days.)
The times are shifting. Women want their style choices to easily fit their lifestyles. I think we can all agree, sky high stilettos don't cut it for the on-the-go girl. Designers are paying attention to what women not only what, but what they need from their wardrobe. I feel like popular trends now are influenced by practicality, and how we turn the 'norm' on its head. Adding these sneakers to my look unexplainably made me feel cooler. Normally, I would gravitate towards classics on my feet: block heels, mules, delicate flats. I paired my sneakers with this slick Nasty Gal blazer dress. I love how this look can go day to night easily. The next time I'm on the dance floor expect me in these sneakers. 
 I love looks that are influenced from a past era. This look feels half 80's super model, half 90's working mom. The shoulder pads definitely take it there. I put my hair in a tight bun, to add more of an edgy feel. I felt pretty bad ass in this look. (And got plenty of stares.) So yes, I am sold on dad sneakers. I plan to wear these with jeans, floral dresses, sleek turtlenecks and maxi silk skirts. 
I tried my hardest to fight off this trend but it was just too good to skip. Have you tried the this trend? What should be my next Fashion Test Drive? Comment below.
